Ultimate Cheese & Chutney Sourdough Toastie

No description needed, make this and you’ll be everyone’s best friend.

Firstly, make your sourdough loaf. Let your dough defrost (either 3-4 hours in a warm kitchen, or overnight in the fridge). Put both doughballs together (don’t use flour at this point) by shaping and moulding them in your hands. Then put the dough in a floured bowl/ proving basket and cover. It’ll now need to proof (double in size) which will take a few hours (the time will depend on the room temp, approx. 3-4 hours). If you have a nice cosy spot like a shelf over a radiator, it’ll work a treat, just don’t place over a direct heat.

When the dough has risen, pre-heat the oven to 220 degrees/ Fan 200/ Gas Mark 7. Turn onto a lined tray, and bake in an oven at for 25 mins until golden brown. A great tip, if you tap it on the base it’ll sound hollow when it’s ready.

Leave to cool slightly, then cut into thick slices. Spread liberally with chutney and your favourite cheese, then grill in a panini press/ toastie maker until melted and oozy. Delicious with fresh green salad.
